To hide the change in floor levels between the two areas, instead of leaving the floor transition open, it attached a low built-up wall and put a thick wood top right above it, framing and making the area semi-enclosed. As the height of the wall with ledge was kept low, it simply appears like a low console table or a piece of a low built-in shelf. It perfectly conceals the back of the U-shaped modular sofas, giving it a wall to lean upon.

A pair of chesterfield sofas, an x-franed coffee table, 2 classic bergere and an inlaid side table composes the main elements of the room.

Compared to the other sunken living room examples, this one is longer, allowing you to create two separate sitting areas, or combine them as needed. It feels like a different room, although it employs an open layout, because the ceiling height for the living room is a lot higher than the other parts of the house and the floor level is 4 steps lower. Since the interior architectural details of the house has a classic European look – walnut floors, matching walnut windows and doors, yellow walls and stained glass – it compensates with its use of plain-colored furniture pieces, balancing the look.

Luxury and elegance can clearly be felt in this small sunken living area. Just two steps down the main floor level and framed by 4 classical order columns, the area looks very defined as it uses cherry wood flooring as opposed to the polished granite of the main floor area.

Directly parallel to the dining area and just one step down is the main sitting area with beech wood floors, and perpendicular to the dining room and right by the bay window is an even deeper sunken area with built-in bench seats that follows the shape of the window walls. This is a great huddle area, reading nook, or a perfect place to have your afternoon coffee or tea.

The design of this home is inspired by classic European styles and furniture pieces, and foes for a simplified version of the classic look by using a basic neutral palette, making it easier on the eyes. The palette basically consists of creams, golds and Mahogany, creating a very warm and cozy atmosphere that would remind you of hotels or spas. The large formal living area is placed right beside the main staircase and can be overlooked from the second floor hallway/mezzanine.

There are 3 sofas, 2 heavy solid wood coffee tables, an armchair, an electric fireplace fixed on a porcelain tile-clad accent wall and other matching accessories to complement the look.

This is another classic European style sunken living room, but this one is semi-enclosed and is right beside the formal dining area. It has a high ceiling with rustic wood slats and solid wood beams with corbel accents and 2 classic gold chandeliers.

Some French provincial elements can be found as well, but given a contemporary twist, just like the stone wall with an irregular shape, display niches and even a built-in fireplace with iron railing.

This sunken living room is actually a multi-functional area. When the folding doors are closed, this is simple a living area with a nice view of the pool area, but when you open the two walls with folding doors, the living area looks more like a covered patio area.
